Fruit fly is becoming a major problem in many areas across Australia, in both home gardens and commercial enterprises. At Commercial Netmakers, our specifically designed fruit fly netting is the ideal pesticide-free solution to exclude fruit fly.
Fruit Fly Netting for Exclusion
Exclusion is a safe and simple organic strategy that relies on preventing access by fruit flies, moths, insects and birds to the fruit or vegetable crops you need to protect. In many situations it is much easier and cleaner than using the traditional cover sprays of dimethoate and tenthion. Fruit fly mesh cover and netting is the perfect alternative to other methods of control such as chemical sprays, mass baiting and trapping and sterile fruit fly releases.

Used to cover entire plants or crops, clusters of fruit, or individual pieces of fruit, fruit tree insect netting has many benefits including:
- Simple to install
- No sprays needed
- Creates micro climate
- Environmentally friendly
- Ideal for organic growers

Fruit fly netting can be used as a throw-over net for trees. It is a heavier type netting at 103gm2 + 5gm2 and provides approximately 10% shade + 2%. If using as a throw over net for individual trees. The easiest way is fully enclosing the tree with netting i.e loosely tying the net around the trunk of the tree. However, the quickest way to damage your netting and tree is allowing branches to grow through any netting. Commercial Netmakers always recommend keeping netting off trees, by using two lengths of poly pipe in a X shape, slipped over star pickets or stakes (tied at the top cross over, bamboo bent over your tree or any type of frame. Fruit fly netting is also suitable for small and large structures.
